A modern hotel well located

Posted Jan 18, 2017
Pros: The breakfast and spacious grounds and ample seating.
Location: Plenty of restaurants and a fabulous beach.
Stayed for 3 days in January 2017 and fortunate to have glorious weather. The location is centrally between Vilamoura and Quateira with a new walkway alongside a very nice beach. Amble free parking, and good entertainment on the weekend.

Great out of season escape

Posted Dec 16, 2016
Pros: The rooms, the breakfast and the staff
Location: The marina is 15 minutes away and has a lot of places to eat and shops to browse around
A lovely hotel in a spot halfway between the marina and the the main shops, 15 minutes walk from either. The staff were very helpful, the rooms were wonderful and the food was excellent

nice hotel overlooking beach

Posted Dec 5, 2016
very nice but in the off season in late November when the outdoor pool is not usable there should not be an 11 Euro fee to swim in the indoor pool. There were only four floors open in the hotel so there was no need to restrict access

Good clean hotel

Posted Nov 26, 2016
Nice ,clean hotel and friendly staff.One major criticism was that the hotel wanted to charge 11euros each a day to use the indoor swimming pool.This is well out of order so would never stay at this hotel again.

Excellent position

Posted Nov 20, 2016
Pros: The hotel was very clean and comfortable and the staff were helpful and friendly. The public areas are spacious and comfortable.
Cons: Free WiFi would be helpful. Replenishment of tea and coffee supplies in the room could be more regular. We had to remind reception for more supplies.
Location: Close to the sea but within easy reach of the marina and a wide selection of bars and restaurants. East access to the promenade to Quarteira.
This was our first visit to this hotel and we will definitely return! This an ideal location for a relaxing holiday. Loved the modern bathroom.

Great location, breakfast, expensive

Posted Oct 31, 2016
Pros: Rooms, location, decor, breakfast, cleanliness. The hotel is large but still has a friendly feel about it. It has everything you need for a great holiday. Towels supplied for the pool and plenty of sun beds (ok you might not get a bed around the pool but loads of space in the surrounding gardens). Breakfast is excellent - can't fault it. Dinner is good food but expensive - loads of really great eating houses around the Vilamoura Marina which is 5 mins away.
Cons: Additional charge for use of indoor pool. Pool bars, food and other extras very very expensive (rip-off). Staff are nice but a bit "relaxed". The "kids club" is poor. Its a couple of tables in the shade by an adventure playground where kids can do colouring and play board games. Its really boring and the staff don't interact with the children - this needs a re-think by the Management.
Location: Right in heart of Vilamoura and on the beach - can't get a better location. Vilamoura is a really plush resort, great Marina and nightlife.
